    Perfect standmount speaker to go with Rega Brio

    Hi all, I have a Rega Brio amp, Rega Apollo CD player and Rega P2 turntable, and now looking for the perfect standmount speaker.

    Recommendations wanted: large standmount speaker that's okay near walls.

    Hi folks, I'm wondering if there are any larger stand mount speakers that don't mind being too close to walls? By large I mean 6.5-8 inch drivers. I realise the laws of acoustics make it difficult to have big bass near a wall without issues, but I am wondering which speakers are MORE suitable...

    dedicted atmos v standmount

    Apart from the built in angled baffle of atmos speakers are they better than regular standmount speakers which are angled down? My room layout means Dali Alteco C-1 will work ok on the front height, but not on the rear height as not only will they need to be angled down, but forward (unless I...

    Floorstander or standmount.

    Currently looking to move on from my Quad 11Ls for something hopefully somewhat better. I really do not want to change my amp Audio Analogue Puccini SE, 50W into 8 ohms as I think it is a cracker. Am considering floorstanders but they will obviously need a bit more power to drive than the...

    Question Floorstander v Standmount: which is best?

    I‘ve been loving my system (Marantz CD6006 UK as transport, Roksan Kandy K3 DAC, Rega Brio, Monitor Audio Bronze 5) but I have been recently reflecting on floor standing vs stand mount speakers. I rate the MA Bronze 5 hugely as they combine scale and detail, but they are the baby of the system...
